Z – MY TWENTY-SIXTH (AND LAST) TRANSPORTATION THEMED BLOG FOR THE APRIL A-Z CHALLENGE

YACHT - MY TWENTY-FIFTH TRANSPORTATION THEMED BLOG FOR THE APRIL A-Z CHALLENGE

I have ‘sailed’ a yacht three times, each time as crew to experienced yachtsmen.

The first time was a nice serene affair around Plymouth Sound. The second and third occasions were however described by each skipper as the “worst conditions that I have ever sailed in!” 430 more words

Y is for YARRAWONGA, Victoria, Australia. Yarrawonga is situated in northern Victoria, on the border of New South Wales.

I have a connection to Yarrawonga due to my TAYLOR family, who farmed land at Bundalong, just outside Yarrawonga, in the 19th Century. 122 more words

X-RATED -MY TWENTY-FOURTH TRANSPORTATION THEMED BLOG FOR THE APRIL A-Z CHALLENGE

I have been on a few x-rated journeys in my time. Any overnight bus journey (especially Odessa to Sevastopol 2011), the freezing Nis to Sofia train that I have already recounted on this blog, a car breakdown a few miles outside Ipswich on the way back to Devon, a turbulence ridden flight on a Tupolev turboprop flight to Bulgaria and my attempt at paragliding that ended with a crash landing in the sea, again in Bulgaria, spring instantly to mind. 272 more words
